Our well-qualified team of highly motivated and experienced staff work together to provide a well-balanced programme of fun activities and learning experiences, within a carefully planned curriculum.

The nursery features high quality educational resources to suit the age and stage of the children. There are role-play areas in every room to encourage cognitive development, as well as dedicated creative areas.

I have over ten years childcare experience and am thrilled to now be leading and inspiring a team to deliver outstanding practice here on the Science Park. I spent six years of my career studying, starting with a foundation degree in childhood studies and then progressing onto a BA hons in early years.
The majority of my career has been working with children aged 3 - 5 years which is where my love for letters and sounds begun! Letters and sounds has been a passion of mine since my first position as a preschool practitioner, as they naturally encourage 'school readiness'. Throughout my career, I have supported many children with additional needs; another passion that was sparked early on in my career. I have been fortunate enough to be SENCO in a previous setting, which enabled me to enhance my practice further. I work close with our nursery SENCO to ensure we are meeting the needs of all children within our care.
I am driven to provide a fun, safe and stimulating environment for all children who attend our setting and work close with the team to ensure the children we care for have fun, exciting experiences. We aim to provide open ended experiences for all ages here at Chilworth both indoors and outdoors! If you would like to know more please give us a call and we can book you in for personal tour.
I have been working in childcare since I gained my level 3 qualification in Childhood Studies in 2001. Over that time I have worked in most roles within the nursery setting from cover staff to room leader.
I started here at Chilworth in 2019 as Deputy Manager and have share the vision of the nursery to deliver high quality experiences for the children.
I have experience of working with children of all ages and am passionate about supporting children with their development in all areas. I strive to support the staff team in creating awe and wonder in all rooms throughout the nursery, there is nothing more rewarding to me than hearing and seeing the children explore and learn beyond their own imagination.
